King's Manor Courtyard

Linked Pasts VIII Symposium

COST Action SEADDA will be hosting Linked Pasts VIII in person in York, UK from 29 November to 1 December 2022, along with asynchronous online participation taking place 22-28 November.

The annual Linked Pasts symposium brings together scholars, heritage professionals and other practitioners with an interest in Linked Open Data as applied to the study of the ancient and historical world. Panels and working groups at Linked Pasts are more goal-oriented than a conventional academic conference, and activities and agendas are often proposed, developed and revised by all participants at the event itself. The Linked Pasts Symposium is a formal partner of the Pelagios Network.

The eighth instalment of Linked Pasts will be hosted in-person from 29 November to 1 December 2022 by the Archaeology Data Service at the University of York and the COST Action Saving European Archaeology from the Digital Dark Age (SEADDA). Some activities during the symposium will be asynchronous and online, with work or discussions taking place in whatever medium is most appropriate to the activity and community in question. These activities will take place Nov 22–28 (remote).

Participation in the conference is free, but advance registration is required.

Please register here.

The deadline for expressions of interest for travel funding and proposing an activity has passed, but it is still possible to register to participate.

 PLEASE NOTE: Activities will take place in The King’s Manor, Department of Archaeology, University of York on 29 November and 1 December. Activities on 30 November will take place at The Guildhall.
